The government is tough on State Jail Felonies. A State Jail Felony conviction carries a minimum punishment range of 180 days to 2 years in a State Jail Facility. State Jail time is served on a day for day basis, meaning there is no parole or “good time” (in rare cases a person may receive diligent participation credit).
Under section 12.44(a) a person convicted of a State Jail Felony offense is subject to a misdemeanor punishment range of 0-365 days in county jail. Serving time in County Jail as opposed to State Jail subjects a defendant to a lesser range of punishment and allows the possibility of work release and weekend jail.
